Jillian C. York (Electronic Frontier Foundation, JillianCYork.com) and Katherine Maher (Wikimedia Foundation)

On Interrobang‽, Jillian and Katherine discuss threats to online freedom around the world, starting with Russia and its popular social network site VKontakte. How do developing nations differ in their views about Internet freedom? They analyze the complicated issue of online censorship in Syria. Next they discuss Turkey, which has a long history of media censorship, and how Prime Minister Erdogan is trying, fairly ineffectually, to block Twitter. Katherine explains why, despite Newt Gingrich’s claims to the contrary, America is not giving up control of the Internet. Plus: Why there was a large blank spot on the front page of Pakistani editions of The International New York Times.
